In gynecological practice one third of patient complaints involve vulvo-vaginal infections. This book helps the practitioner towards accurate diagnosis, and provides suggestions for appropriate patient care that will avoid ineffective treatments and thus ongoing discomfort for the patient. To avoid misdiagnoses the authors outline the correct testing and screening processes that should be used. Two sections of therapy follow: the first outlines the standard accepted modes of therapy, and the second is for patients who fail to respond to the medication prescribed, or who respond and then become symptomatic again after the treatment has ended.
